Cheats’ Risotto Milanese

This makes a wonderful accompaniment to dishes such as Ossobuco and Italian Braised Beef with Gremolata



In a medium-sized frying with a lid, sweat the onion in the butter for 5 minutes, stir in the rice, then add the wine, stock and saffron and a seasoning of salt.

As soon as it reaches simmering point, turn the heat down to the lowest setting, cover and let it cook gently for 20 minutes.

Finally stir the Parmesan and crème fraiche into the rice and serve with the beef.
